Steep sloping site with beautiful views across Morecombe Bay.

Booked and paid over the phone, but office unmanned when we arrived and had to phone for pitching instructions. Needed new gas cylinder next morning but office again closed so spent fruitless hour in town looking for gas. It would be helpful if there was a notice of office opening hours on the door.

Toilets and showers basic, but always clean and cared for.

Stayed here Friday to Sunday as we where visiting the Cumbria Steam Gathering this was a brilliant location for the steam fair and we had brilliant day, this is a lovely site the site is sloped but that helps to see the beautiful scenery of the bay and surrounding area, we read the previous reviews so we where aware to bring extra blocks, TV reception was good, phones worked well too. Carol was so helpful she escorted us to our pitch no problem. Elsan, water and the bins were all in the same area so don. T have to wonder around everywhere as in some previous sites we have visited. Toilet block was sufficient for our needs as we showered in our caravan cannot comment on the showers the people with tents where so friendly all greeted you with a good morning all seemed to be enjoying the relaxation of the site as we where.

Traffic on the M6 north on Friday was a nightmare so a friendly greeting was welcoming we had our tea in the Pheasant Allithwaite would highly recommend the food is good, and the staff where pleasant and we didn't. T have to wait for food It was a well organised place.

Would definelty return to Low Fell Gate as I would love to spend more time in Grange over Sands it's a lovely place.

Stayed over two nights at this site. The camping, touring field is a large sloped area which can lead to levelling difficulties of your van/ motor home on some pitches. It was well mown with a track up the middle. My caravan had one wheel completely off the ground and still not completely level.

The toilet, wash facilities were some distance from our pitch but were well stocked and fairly clean.

The views over the bay are a major attraction for this site. It's within walking distance from the town. We chose to drive to a car park near the doctors surgery ( 1. 20 per day) and walk down the prom to the railway station, through the duck ponds and up to the shops on the high street. A very enjoyable walk and the different types of flowers on the prom walk were lovely.

There are lots of places to eat but we continue to go to The Pheasant at Allinthwaite. It's a great place to dine.

We stayed on a Cartmell race weekend. The site was busy. My only gripe is that There's not much room between pitches and we were so close to our neighbours that it was uncomfortable to sit out.

All in all a good site in a nice area. 17 per night for caravan. Just don't forget your levelling blocks and watch for busy dates. 4g signal is abundant in area.

DO NOT take a campervan or motorhome here. The pitch that we were given was like a parking place at the end of someones seasonal pitch. My wife and I spent 45 minutes trying to level our campervan in several different directions, but in the end we had to give up and park on a triangular piece of grass which was still uneven.

The pitch is just one long sloping field. The toilets were not particularly clean either.

If we had managed to level our van on our given pitch the owner of the seasonal pitch would not have been able to get near there area and they did arrive that night.

We booked in for 2 nights, but left after one.

We had booked a hardstanding pitch with view. When we arrived we were shown to what appeared to be a parking space, with the electric hook coming from the back of the toilet block. The view was minimal, with house roofs ahead of us. There were no other hardstanding options available, the others were already taken with caravans that appeared to be permanently in place. We ended up on the grass in a secluded area, on quite a steep slope. It took us a while to get into the right position, but in the end it was OK, with views of the bay. We were lucky that we didn't have much rain during the week, as on the day we left, when it had rained most of the night, there was a very large puddle due to the slope we were on. It was very private and we didn't have any neighbours, which was nice. The TV signal was good.

The showers/toilets were close by, but could do with some refurbishment. They weren't particularly clean and during the week we couldn't actually tell that they had been serviced, other than fresh toilet roll. They certainly weren't of the standard of other sites we have visited, and we would say they were poor. There was plenty of hot water though.

The location of the site was good, a 20 minute walk down to the promenade which took you into Grange, a steep walk back. There is a good butchers in Grange that sold local fresh produce. The ladies in the Tourist Information office were very helpful with lots of ideas of things to do.

The site is on the Walney to Wear Sustrans no 70 cycle route and we took advantage of this on a couple of days.

We can't comment on what time reception was open because we never saw it open during the week.

There are a number of good pubs in Cartmel - max 10 mins by car. The prices are all much the same and the choices are similar in all. The Sticky Toffee Pudding Shop is in Cartmel - visited by Penelope Keith - a very nice shop for lots of unusual produce, plus the puddings.

We probably would find somewhere else to stay if we were to return.
